Music Mondays: Marina and the Diamonds

Happy Monday guys!

Today I would like to introduce one of my favorite artists: Marina and the Diamonds!
Don't you love cuddly artists! Especially if they have animal hats!

Marina is a Welsh singer-songwriter who I believe to have a strongly unique voice. Her music is a mixture of pop, punk, and rock (they described it as indie pop, new wave... but who really knows what that means?) I first discovered her when I accidentally click on an ad in grooveshark. It was a Victoria's secret ad where they filled my playlist with 'sensual' music that will probably make me buy their lingerie (they succeeded). The first song was "Rootless by Mariana and the Diamonds and I absolutely fell in love with her voice. There is something soothingly odd about her pitch that just caught me and never released me. Here is "Are you satisfied" for your enjoyment.

 Another song I adore by her is "Hermit the Frog." So far she only has one album (Family Jewels) out. BUT her NEW album Electra Heart is coming out in April!!! I'm so excited and you should be excited too!! Please check her out and let me know what you think! Other artist that I will probably do a Music monday for is Katie Melua. Both have music and voices that are hauntingly beautiful.
